A loan of $1,500 helps a member to purchase insecticide for her cassava farm.

Neang Group's story

Neang is 30 years old, married, and lives with her beloved husband and two school-aged children in a village in Snoul district, Kratie province, of Cambodia.

In this district, almost all the people, Neang and her husband included, earn income from agricultural activities such as growing rice, cassava, cashews, and other crops. Since getting married in 2007, Neang and her husband have been cultivating rice and cassava to generate income to support the family’s living. This couple typically makes around 25 USD per day.

Neang appears first on the right in the photo and is representing the group of three members applying for their first loan with Kredit. She would like to use her share of the loan to purchase insecticide for her cassava farm. She believes this loan will help her to well take care of her crops, get higher crop yields, and increase her family's profits.

With the profits from this season’s harvesting, she is going to enlarge her farmland, to build a new house, and to help her children’s studies.
